Apply Analytics To Your Store Traffic Patterns
Want to know more about the traffic outside your store, coming in the door, browsing, and converting? Digiop offers video analytics systems that track and count people, where they're browsing, how well they're converting, where they're waiting for service, where they're loitering, and even where they're shoplifting.
